“Improvisational electronic jazz the way only Detroit can produce.”
Jeff Mills and multi-instrumentalist Rafael Leafar are releasing a new collaborative album, titled The Override Switch, via Mills’ own Axis Records imprint this October.
Aiming to adopt the boundary-pushing approach of artists like John Coltrane, J Dilla, and Kraftwerk, Mills and Leafar crafted an album of “improvisational electronic jazz in the way only Detroit can produce,” as Mills explains.
Axis Alert > Coming October 15th. Jeff Mills and Rafael Leafar debuts the much-anticipated and groundbreaking THE OVERRIDE SWITCH (album).
Formats: 2 X 12" vinyl and digital

“The Override Switch reflects on the precise moment people decide in their minds that the only way to improve a situation is to act – to change the scenario and deal with the consequences as they develop to work for a better outcome.”
It follows Mills’ contributions to Tresor’s 30th anniversary compilation Tresor 30, which will be released this October.
